Hello again,

I have some additional information that points to an
encoding problem.  I pulled the COPY sql from the dump
file for the table that didn't get inserted properly
and tried to run just that section (with psql -f).  I
got this error:

 psql -f bibent_data.sql HRS
psql:bibent_data.sql:1: ERROR:  copy: line 15, Invalid
UNICODE character sequence found (0xc876)
psql:bibent_data.sql:1: lost synchronization with
server, resetting connection

I'm running on FreeBSD 4.5.  Is there a way I need to
recode the file before running it?
